the california suit is about trade secrets. as long as you don't
redistribute, I believe (IANAL!) you are in the clear.

NY is about DMCA. DMCA disallows distribution of tools, not posession
(again, IANAL).

besides, if you live in a country where READING something can land 
you in jail, then it really is time to leave.
